About Me
I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful inspiration to work with), 2 boys and 2 girls.  I was a teacher (high school science) before I stayed at home, and I love to craft!!  My first love is my family, they mean everything to me.  My second love is crafts in all forms including scrapbook layouts, art journals, cards, tags, mixed media, altered items, home decor, and DIY. I started crafting back in middle school painting ceramic figures and making friendship bracelets, I even had a small business going in my school.  From there my crafting has gone to needle point, hand felt sewing, dabbled a bit into knitting (I can only make squares), scrapbooking, and now I do a bit of everything!  I bring a fun, romantic, and sometimes funky feel to my projects.  I guess if you had to label my style it would be romantic, shabby elegant chic, mixed media, grunge, and pop art; really i just play and let the project go where it needs to go.  I have been called the Queen of Layers!!  I love to play with new designs and mediums and I am willing to try and make fun new things and push myself as a designer. 

Objective
To share innovative craft techniques and projects with others through classes, challenges, contests, and design team work. In addition, I am seeking positions as a freelance designer, in house designer, and design teams as well as publication in major print and online magazines and books.
